Sep 14, 2012
It’s only been one week in the 2012-13 season and already people are claiming that New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has finally arrived. Can we all stop overreacting to everything this guy does? Sure Sanchez had three touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills but that doesn’t suddenly make him Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers. Sanchez still has very real issues passing the ball, and those issues will be exploited this week against a Pittsburgh Steelers defense bent on revenge after getting dominated last week by the Denver Broncos.
However, Sanchez is just one of many big names on our Week 2 Fantasy Football Sit ‘Ems article. Take a look below to find out who else we recommend benching this week.
KICKERS - SIT ‘EM
Rob Bironas (Tennessee Titans) @ San Diego
With Jake Locker expected to struggle this week and running back Chris Johnson looking like a carbon copy of 2011 out of the gates, we do not expect much out of Titans kicker Rob Bironas this week. The Chargers did give up two field goals last week but Oakland had problems moving the ball with any kind of consistency and that does not bode well for Bironas. There are simply better options this week and if Bironas is your kicker then you could play the matchup game by finding somebody in free agency for a spot start.

Jason Hanson (Detroit Lions) @ San Francisco
There’s only so many ways we can say the 49ers defense is good. The Lions will find it hard to get into scoring range with any consistency, which is going to limit opportunities for Detroit kicker Jason Hanson. Last week the 49ers not only held their own against the league’s best passing offense, but they limited Green Bay kicker Mason Crosby to two just points on two extra points. It’s recommended to find a spot starter this week for Hanson if your roster allows it, however don’t plug him into your starting lineup this week.
